What Is a Mommy Makeover?
While pregnancy and childbirth are momentous events in any woman’s life, many women are less than thrilled with their post-baby body. The body stores fat differently during pregnancy to provide vital energy to mother and baby, the breasts may sag and appear deflated after breastfeeding, and the abdominal wall may not return to its original firmness.
A mommy makeover performed by Dr. Jimmy Firouz, a board-certified Beverly Hills plastic and reconstructive surgeon can help reverse some of the physical changes brought on by motherhood and restore the aesthetic figure you desire.
The Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery Procedure
In most cases, mommy makeover can involve a breast lift, a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast implants and labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation. A breast lift will reshape and re-position the breasts so that they appear firmer and perkier, a tummy tuck removes excess fat and skin from the abdomen, and liposuction removes unwanted fat from specific areas of the body. A breast implant or augmentation procedure will increase the size and proportion of one’s breasts. Vaginal rejuvenation/labiaplasty tightens the vagina and restores its appearance (especially after childbirth and delivery).
Who Is a Candidate for a Mommy Makeover?
The ideal candidate for a mommy makeover should be in generally good health and sufficiently recovered from their pregnancy and delivery. The procedure is meant to tweak those areas of the body that are resistant to normal exercise, so the patient should be close to their ideal weight. As with any invasive procedure, patients are encouraged to stop smoking prior to the surgery to ensure proper healing and recovery. It is important to note that subsequent significant weight gain or pregnancy may reverse the effects of the mommy makeover procedure.
